How was your Holiday weekend and here to share some STM, OLW and Cafe Mojo! :):):):):):):)

Hi all....

After reading my title, I feel like I'm at work! LOL!!! We use acronyms FOR EVERYTHING!!!! LOL!!! :):):):):):):):):):)

Wanted to share some LO's (pages) I have made for some challenges! :):):):):):):)

First, I want to share the LO I have made for One Little Word (OLW)!!! This time Gigi has chosen the word "JOY"! :):):):):):):):):):):)

My journaling reads:

"There will be
heartbreak -
sadness -
struggles -
trials -
Its the
U bring 2 the world
that matters most"

I have to thank CASS for taking that AMAZING photo of me!!! LOVE it! LOVE her! :):):):):):):):) I used the latest Kenner Road kit on this LO! :):):):):):):):)

Next...I want to share the latest Scrapping the Music (STM)!!!! We are doing something FUN this month by having some TV theme show songs as or songs of the WEEK!!! This weeks is "CHEERS".....*sigh* I loved that show!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):) This is some of my Arizona SISters when we got together in March and had ourselves a little croppy time!!!!! LOVE these GIRLS! :):):):):):):):):):):) I used the latest kit for this LO! :):):):):):):):):) We also have a NEW MEMBER on our DESIGN TEAM....come on over and give her a BIG WELCOME!!!!!!! Hope my scrappy friends can join us! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And the last LO I want to share is for the latest Cafe Mojo challenge!!! This time its all about the RED, WHITE and BLUE and SUMMERTIME!!!!!!! :):):):):):):):):):) I made this at SISiversary where my friend Denise had given me a vintage record album that was called POLKA PARTY!!!! Soooooo I cut out the title from it and used it on here!!! Thanks DENISE!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):) And my friend VICKI tied that CUTE bow for me...cuz I suck at that!!! LOL!!!:):):):):):):):) Thanks VICKI! :):):):):):):)

AND for those CURIOUS friend Nikki had the BRILLIANT idea for me to google "polish phrases" and that's where I came up with, "ZATANCZYMY?" which MEANS...."Let's Dance!" This is Brookie dancing to POLKA MUSIC at a POLISH FESTIVAL in March (now, I know, I know....March is NOT summer....but if U have EVER EVER been to PHOENIX, ARIZONA where I LIVE...then U would KNOW that SUMMER STARTS in like FEBRUARY here!!! LOL!!! Sooooooooo I went with that!!!! LOL) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Hope my scrappy friends can come join us! :):):):):):)
Besides the alphas from the record album, I used's latest kit on this LO! :):):):):):):):):)

AND YESTERDAY was INDEPENDENCE DAY for the USA.....and we didn't do much....Mr. Dandy (our doggy) doesn't like the fireworks (actually FREAKS OUT!!! is a better way of putting it!! LOL) sooooooooooo we did go to Brian's parents for a little bit soooooo Brookie could swim, but came home early to make sure that Mr. Dandy went "out" before the fireworks began! :):):):):):):):):):)

Annie Oakley, anyone?!?!?! :):):):):)

Squirting her OWN hair! LOL! :):):):):)

Squirting Papa Mike! :):):):):):):)

Y'all know he knows BETTER right???!!!!??? Squirt the woman holding the camera?!?!?!?! I think NOT!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):)

Messing with Daddy and telling him...."Your leg is heavy Daddy, but that ok....cuz I strong!!!" LOL! :):):):):):):):):)

And since the sale of fireworks, sparklers and all things "shiny" are illegal to purchase in Arizona (now....I didn't say people DON'T do it...just saying they are illegal!! LOL) Nana Sue and Papa Mike got Brookie some glow sticks!!! LOL :):):):) She was soooooooo cute running around with them! :):):):):):)

Now U see her!!!

Now U don't!!!!
